It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.
~ Upton Sinclair
The Anabaptists were persecuted by both the Catholic and Protestant streams of Christianity.
They didn’t believe in the institutionalization of the church, including a clergy/laity divide.
This got them into hot water with organized Christianity.
Many contemporary pastors are leaving the pastorate for similar reasons. They are experiencing a crisis of conscience.
